Smart Watches for Photographers
Today I have Liam Douglas joining me once again and we’re talking about a two smartwatch options for photographers. Liam, welcome to the show!
Garmin Instinct Solar
I use my Apple Watch quite frequently for photography and especially in conjunction with an app called Lumy. Lumy has some of the same functions as Photo Pills, but not as much to it as it is primarily for landscape and travel photography. It contains the following items for use doing these styles of photography.
Tracking Blue Hour and Golden Hour with the time for each based on your GPS location.
Sunset and Sunrise tracking again based on GPS location
Morning and Evening nautical twilight
Morning and Evening Astronomical Twilight
Total hours and minutes of daylight and night
Live digital compass
It also will tell you the track for the sun in the sky and the arc it follows.
Lumy also has a few great Apple Watch faces that you can add to your Apple Watch.
The Watch Face I use allows quick access to not only the time, but standard Apple Compass as a complication, a Sun tracking compass complication, temperature, and weather conditions at a glance.

WristCam for Apple Watch. This is a nice bit of kit as it allows you to shoot 8MP stills and record HD video as well. Unit also has a 2MP selfie camera that could use some work, seemed to be grainy to me.
